The ultimate backcountry experience in the mountains of northwestern BC.

It's big. Much of it is alpine and glaciated. It appeals to stronger skiers.

Northern BC is like nothing you've ever experienced - big mountains, rich culture & more bears than people!

Burnie Glacier Chalet is easy to get to - leave Vancouver in the morning and ski in the afternoon!

A backcountry lodge in Canada that offers all the charm of a European mountain hut - all to yourself!

Summer mountaineering course

Want to go on where the trails end and the snow, ice and rock starts? In the week-long course at the Burnie Glacier Chalet, you learn the basics of rock, ice, and snow climbing. How to handle the gear, how to use crampons, ice axe, and rock shoes, and how to move over the varied terrain. You can apply what you have learned by climbing some of the easier glaciated summits from the lodge. $2,150.00


Awesome week – the most fun educational experience I’ve had. Unbelievable terrain – huge! Great options from alpine to perfect glades. The sauna is truly a highlight and a must at the end of the day. Thanks to Monika and Dave for feeding us like kings each and every day. Christoph gave us the goods and a tonne of knowledge. I’ll be back! Thanks Christoph.
